It's official! After months of rumors and speculation, Fiat-Chrysler has confirmed a new Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is coming in 2017.
The new vehicle, named the Scrambler, should be released by 2017. Specifications are still sparse, but according to Love 4x4, consumers can probably expect a 3.6 liter VVT V6 standard engine and the heavy-duty off-road suspension system that the Wrangler is known for.
Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles, first said that the next generation of the Wrangler will be all aluminum. However, Marchionne later confirmed that the Scrambler won't be completely made out of the material. The chassis is said to be traditional and fitted with aluminum panels. According to Cars in Trend, the vehicle will also have traditional solid axles and the power-plants are expected to be the current.
In an interview with The Detroit News, Marchionne stated that the pickup will be produced in Toledo. It will be produced alongside the next-generation Wrangler.
